Current Research

Soil Environment Services can deliver high quality research into soils, composts and organic waste recycling.

Research undertaken has ranged from large collaborative projects with universities and multinationals, addressing major issues and funded by central government grants to very small projects, privately funded and addressing key points needed to progress a particular development.

We can test soil and compost in the laboratory or the field for a range of determinants required for development at Greenfield or Brownfield sites, together with testing for agricultural or for research purposes.
